How To Quickly Get Through Unexpected Bad News

Ever have your entire day ruined by some bad news?

Isn’t it amazing how your entire day can be changed by a couple of written words or even a 30 second conversation.

Think about that day you woke up perfectly refreshed from your bed. The sun was shining outside as you left your home for work.

“Today is going to be a good day.”

You get ready for your typical 45 minute commute to work. As you drive, you notice all the usually choke points have disappeared. Ever traffic light instantly turns green as you approach.

“Man, must be my lucky day!”

As you get ready to depart your car you see your umbrella in the back seat. With the way the sun is shining, you conclude that the 70% chance of showers was not going to happen.

You arrive to the front door of your office building with a pep in your step. Other workers seem to smile your way.

The day will be a great day.

You get to your office and notice an email from your supervisor. It’s marked urgent so you open it up.

“Love your hard work, but unfortunately I can’t grant you that vacation request. We need you for a big meeting on that date.

You owe me anyways remember.”

Bad News, No Vacation!

That email completely caught you off guard. What once was a smile on your face has now turned into a frown.

“You owe me? I’ve been working my butt off, what does he mean that!”

You then remember the weeks of planning with your family for your beach vacation. You promised them that you would be able to make it. How dare your job take away our happiness!

This unexpected bad news has now shifted your entire viewpoint for the reminder of the day!

Does this story sound somewhat familiar?

A single email from a co-worker can make you go from smiling to completely ticked off in seconds!

It’s amazing how often less than 1% of our entire day can make or break our mode!

Bad news can affect our appetites, our conversations and whether or not we actually work out that day.

It can feel like a punch right in the gut!

What to do about Bad News

I wish I could say that you should “just get over it” and move on.

Human beings are too emotional not to have bad news affect them in some way.

Instead of instantly moving on, I suggest you:

Give yourself five minutes of alone time

It’s time to embrace being human!  Use those five minutes to get all those negative thoughts & emotions out of your system.

For some, your thoughts and emotional energy will be nothing but anger.

For others it may involve some crying.

As long as you are not physically or emotionally harming another person, do whatever it takes to get it out of your system!

Call a buddy if you have to.

Tell them you need a couple of minutes to vent and let it out!

Once you have it out of your system by addressing it, it’s NOW time to move on by replacing those negative thoughts with positive memories.

Remember all those awesome moments you were having BEFORE you got that bad news? Rewind yourself and get back on that path!

Think about how awesome your day was and will continue to be.

That bad news was only a temporary glitch. Don’t allow it to control your life for hours, days or weeks!

Bad news is going to happen. The mark of being successful is not letting that information keep you from achieving your goals.

Whether that’s your diet, exercise or career goals, always keep your eyes on the overall prize!

Dealing With Changes This Fourth Of July Week

How do you plan on spending your Fourth of July holiday?

Did you plan yourself a four day weekend? Are you going on a week long vacation with the family?

No matter what your plans are, please take the time to relax and enjoy yourself.

Not only is the Fourth of July a national holiday, but it’s a great time to reflect on the many changes that’s been going on in your life. Whether that’s just individual changes or maybe even family changes.

If you’re living on this planet, you have to be comfortable with change. You may not always agree with the change but it’s still a change that has to happen in order to get better.

Think about back when America was first founded. How many patriots do you think actually liked the idea of rebelling against the British?

It would have been more comfortable to sit back and do nothing. But a few people declared that they wanted independence, and in a manner of weeks everyone’s life had to change as this country fought for it’s independence.

Fourth of July isn’t just about the fireworks. It’s about the struggles that our country has gotten through.

The amendments to the Constitution keeps adapting to the change of the times. That’s a natural part of progress.

So as you celebrate the Fourth of July, make sure you take the time to appreciate the changes in your life. I know this government of ours is far from perfect, but it’s up to us as a people to change their policies and direction for the better!

Use that as the spark to keep up your positive changes in the months to come!

Take Advantage Of Those Times You Physically Do Hard Work

Ever have those days where you just end up doing some hard work?

I’m not talking about hard work at the gym, I’m talking about in your normal routine.

I may be a travel fitness coach, but there’s more to being in shape than what you find inside a gym. The hardest work usually occurs outside the gym.

For a lot of frequent travelers, their jobs are physically demanding. Hard work is sometimes just a normal day.

For others, hard work only happens a few times a month. Why not take advantage?

How No Sleep Affects Your Body and Mind When Traveling

Ever had one of those days where you were completely exhausted due to no sleep?

One of the worst feelings is arriving at a traveling destination completely exhausted!

Not only are you out of your comfort zone but you’re just not able to fully comprehend the tasks that need to be done due to brain fog.

Did you tell your family that you safely arrived?
What time is your meeting tomorrow?
Do you have your report ready?
Were you suppose to meet Chris for dinner?
What’s that address of your hotel again?

In today’s video post, MicVinny aka Mr. Travel Fitness talks about the effects that no sleep can cause on your body and mind during your travels.

Pivot When Life Don’t Go As Planned

So what do you do when:

  1. You forgot to bring your lunch to work?
  2. You have no workout shoes in your gym bag?
  3. Your water bottle was left at home on your kitchen coutner?
  4. You get food poisoning while traveling?

You learn how to pivot!

Life will never go according to plan. The harder the goal, the bigger the distractions that will pop up in your life to prevent you from reaching your desired destination.

The weak minded will allow those distractions to trick their minds into thinking that obstacles are too hard to overcome.

What will happen to that person over time is a lifetime of regrets.

I don’t want that for you!

In today’s video, MicVinny shares the awful details of what happened that night he got food poisoning and how it affected his own fitness plans.

Instead of just giving up on your long term goals, MicVinny will teach you the mindset you need to immediately get back on track with a new plan.

While trying to achieve any dream, DISTRACTIONS WILL COME…..you just got to pivot!

Watch and learn how!
